Lifelong Ohio State fan. Born and raised on the Ohio River on my grandpappy's farm where I learned two important life lessons: 1, Always treat people how you'd want to be treated, even the people who mistreat you. 2, Three yards and a cloud of dust! One of my earliest memories as a child is wearing my scarlet and gray footie pajamas while watching OSU game replays on the local WOSU channel with my dad. I even remember Paul Warfield announcing. I grew up in southern Ohio and have lived all over the state including Chillicothe and Cleveland. I've been known to scream at the TV when Ohio State plays. I go all in every game hence why my screen name is IN ALL CAPS. When Ohio State loses I am sick to my stomach for several days afterward. When they win it's like freaking Christmas. I hate Michigan. I hate them more than Khan hated Captain Kirk. Michigan sucks. I also hate the SEC (especially effing Gator fans). Go Bucks!


  • SPORTS MOMENT: My best personal sports moment was my 1 tackle in high school in the 1989 OHSAA Division IV state championship game at Ohio Stadium on the old field turf. To play an actual game on the same turf Woody walked on will always be the greatest sports moment of my life. That and OSU's 2002 national championship game win over Miami. I cried tears of utter joy after that win.

The 49ers are off to a rocky start. If they're going to get Jim Harbaugh it's going to be now or never.

They want to guarantee 20 million people won't watch the playoff they'll do just that and let 3 SEC teams in. Nobody outside the south likes that conference.

BuckeyeHistorian, I hear you. Indiana going into Missouri, who went to the SEC title game last year, and winning is beyond the scope of explanation, especially considering how awful the Hoosiers have played defense AND the fact that BG beat them last week, the same BG team that gave up 644 yards rushing to Wisconsin. The simplest explanation I could come up with was "shit happens" because trying to wrap my head around that is impossible at this juncture.

A statement win over a Tommy Tuberville team? I'll take that.

Gotta keep Warinner. He's the only one who can fix the OL. I've always envisioned Herman taking a job in Texas. SMU, Houston or someone like that.

As it was said before, shit happens.

Not sure it can be Miles because of his contract. His buyout is huge. Harbaugh might be available but I think they'll need to toss Brandon first. Miles and Harbaugh are the only 2 hires they can make that will immediately transform them. Anyone else will have a rebuilding job to do, Mack Brown included.

The only team that has truly impressed me so far is Texas A&M. Oregon looked great vs. Sparty but barely beat Wazzu who lost to Rutgers. Rutgers barely beat Navy. Indiana wins at Mizzou. Unranked Miss State wins at LSU. This entire season is screwy and we're just through week 4.

I'll tell you another thing. Winston has become a distraction for FSU. They barely win without him. He comes back and the media circus comes down I will be interested to see how it affects them. His pattern of behavior suggests he's going to do something else stupid or a skeleton in his closet is going to come to light and he's going to get suspended at a critical time, like leading up to the ACC title game.

^ BuckeyeSouth, I actually thought the same thing. Put all their eggs in the basket...and then tossed the basket into the freeway.

Indiana proved that. Unranked Mississippi State is proving it right now at LSU.

If OSU had played (and thumped) Vandy last year the media would've turned it around and disavowed Vandy as part of that mighty SEC.

Comment 20 Sep 2014

I don't want to see it but don't be so sure of that. It is well known Harbaugh has a rocky relationship with 49er brass and a bad season with that new stadium would be enough for them to change coaches. If so and he's offered more $ than any NFL team or if Miles suddenly realizes this is his last chance to take the job before he retires it's entirely plausible. Either one of those hires would transform them instantly.

That's a girl though likely a very comatose one.

Pat Narduzzi is in his seventh year as the defensive coordinator at Michigan State, and though he is now looked at as a coaching genius, his teams struggled early in his tenure in East Lansing. The 2009 Spartan defense was ranked 112th in nation in pass defense, but by 2011, when the secondary was full of players who had spent their entire careers in his system, the unit ranked 11th. In the years since, Narduzzi has never seen a defense rank outside the top 10 in that category.

Even when Ash came aboard I had a feeling it would take time to right the ship. I just hope our learning curve is much smaller than Narduzzi's. I'll take a top 50 pass defense this year with the hope of a Top 10 unit in 2015 and beyond. I have a feeling we're going to be calling for a raise for Mr. Ash at some point. (Lets hope it gets to that anyway).
